|Description||Ontario Wait Times Strategy |
Ontario’s Wait Time Strategy was developed to improve access to five key health services by reducing wait times for cancer surgery, cardiac procedures, cataract surgery, hip and knee replacement and MRI and CT scans.
The strategy has since expanded to include all surgeries and time spent in emergency rooms (ER). The government’s goal is to improve public access to surgeries and procedures delivered to Ontarians * implement new initiatives to improve ER processes * and create a system of accountability through transparent reporting of wait time information.
